"One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his greatest surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't" ~Henry Ford

"Leaders are more powerful role models when they learn than when they teach" - Rosabeth Moss Kantor

Achieving something for the first time is an amazing experience. The challenge of completing something new breeds confidence, gives a sense of accomplishment, adds to our skillsets, and makes us more energetic and engaged. Most of us know this and understand this on a certain level. So let me ask you a question:

When was the last time you took on a new skill, took a class, tried something new in the workplace or out of the workplace?

If it has been a while, then GET OUT OF YOUR RUT! If you’re in one, your staff probably is too, and no high performing team is in a rut. So get some practical, or even impractical, new experiences under your belt. Take an Excel class, go bungee jumping, learn how to drive the forklift, take a golf lesson, have someone in finance take you through last year’s annual report, learn how to do someone else’s job function. Do something you’ve never done before and you’ll do a better job at work, period.
